In the 5th chapter of Matthew’s Gospel we hear Jesus say “Rejoice and be Glad” just after reciting the Beatitudes. Some people find this to be a difficult expression, given that the Beatitudes are about mourning, being meek, merciful and persecuted. So how and why would one rejoice? The answer comes in the ability to look beyond the here and now. The ability to embrace a relationship with our Good and Gracious God, and a Faith which speaks of greater things to come.
The Themed weekend retreat is open to all men in the diocese.
The retreat begins with dinner at 6:30 pm on Friday evening and ends with lunch on Sunday.
